It’s Springtime, so I have so many favourites it’s hard to choose. All month I’ve been loving Freesias and Daffodils and Iris and the Plum blossom. Lately the White flowered Angel’s Fishing Rod has been waving beautifully in the wind and the Mignonette is smelling very sweet and is attracting bees.
Cistus ‘Bennet’s White’ has been a big bee favourite as well so it is a favourite of mine too. Erodium is another plant looking fabulous right now, it’s blooming all the time and makes such a pretty mound of greyish slightly fuzzy foliage. The seed heads are also cool like rows of little stork bills. And last and littlest the Euphorbia x martini is flowering it’s little tiny heart out.
The Mignonette is a small plant but the scent is strong enough to catch my attention as I walk past.
The bees collect pollen from the Cistus flowers but they also were spending time on the edge of each flower this morning, maybe getting moisture from dew?
Daffodil “Éclat ” opens with its head down and gradually straightens up.
Erodium flowers are sweet and subtle.
The seed heads and leaves are a lovely shape and texture.
Last and littlest this little Euphorbia x martini just grown from a cutting a few months ago has more flower than leaves.
